Yeah, at least make VRPC work on Linux! That way you could at least have a slim Linux installation suffient to run RISC OS and avoid M$. Now, if VRPC was being used as a tool to make a more portable RISC OS, module by module, this would be good thing. I doubt anyone is doing this though.

Its true - the present situation simply destroys hardware sales and hands dosh to a company selling an old OS only suitable for old hardware and emulators. Although the fact VRPC is outselling Iyonix could simply mean there's people buying it for nostalgia or to access old files, who would never buy any more RISC OS hardware.

Also, Caslte don't get away smelling of roses. The failiure to market a cut-down Iyonix for the thousands of RISC OS fans that don't have 1200 to spend has made software option look far too attractive.
